[Ravensfort] From the Autocrat of Defender of the Fort

I would like to add my words of praise for Baron Brian's running of
Defender. He took over as Autocrat with short notice and did an excellent
job of pulling things together with the little time left. As far as I could
tell, everything that needed to be taken care of was competed without
exception. No unfinished tasks. Kudos. I must admit that I was skeptical
about his plans for the blue velvet tent when we started, but it functioned
beautifully and provided much need shade. Even when everyone else had
packed up their personal belongings and headed home, Brian stayed for hours
with a small hand full of helpers ( Dare, Magnus and myself ) to completely
breakdown the site, clean the kitchen, make several trips to the storeroom
and he even took pots home to be washed. Again, nothing remained undone.
As someone that has personally autocrated sixteen times, I tip my hat to you
I would remiss if I did not also add my thanks to Runa for a feast that was
served in a timely manner and was very tasty and diverse. I believe all
bellies were quite satisfied.
P.S. I have the ropes from the horse stables which I will bring to Officers
